Repair Your Rubber Intake Manifold

Recommended Posts

a couple weeks ago, i bought a parts quad, an 88 big bear. as it has been cold up until this weekend, i have not started determining what is salvageable, until now. i really wanted the trunk compartment from this bike, as mine was cracked. i also wanted the carburetor. as i started to dis-assemble the carb pieces, i giggled at what i saw and then thought, what a great fix !! the rubber manifold was like a canadian redneck fix, and very nicely done ... i had a cracked manifold boot and it cost me 70 bucks for a new one ... this fix is so simple ... take the rubber manifold boot off the carb and cylinder, wrap all the rubber with drywall adhesive fiber mesh tape, and coat it with hockey skate toe protector. the toe protector hardens solid and is very very strong if you have never been around it before. you can re-coat as many times as you like, but let dry completely first.
